    S210 new 'Mechanical ' steering feel

    Driving the old beast yesterday and it felt like there was some obstructive intervention in the operation of the rack - no evident shake or vibration on the road as such, just a feel through the wheel as you go from lock to lock of something there causing it not to be smooth. Sorry I can't...

    Mechanical club

    My R129 isn't perfect but that's because it's a project car I want to get up to par through my own work. Is there a club or meet that's gets people together to discuss or work on cars. The local place to hire 'Ramp it up' in Avonmouth has just closed so I'm at a loss for advice or opportunity to...

    High precision mechanical pencils

    Anyone into these high precision, very fancy and pricy, mechanical pencils? My sister sent me a few, but I just can't get one with them - prefer a simple old-fashioned pencils that I can sharpen and shape as I like, with the exception of my trusty Montblanc Michelangelo 5.5mm, but that's for...

    Mechanical hum/whine when engine turns off

    Car is C250 AMG Line Premium Plus Diesel. When I turn the engine off I notice a faint mechanical hum. Does anyone know what this is? I suspect that it could be an electric pump which circulates engine oil in order that the turbo oil doesn't cook. But does anyone know for sure? Link to...

    Mechanical sympathy and EVs

    Our little Zoe has slotted in nicely to our car pool and it's got me thinking that Sunday morning nipping out for the papers, bacon etc I'm sure I'm not the only one cringing when doing this in a stone cold V8 that is still cold on return - on many an occasion I felt the need to drive around for...

    MB Tier 1 Warranty - mechanical failure - do you have to wait for the breakdown?

    Hi A specialist told me my suspension needed repair, the car is under a T1 warranty (the specialist had no expectation of making the repair so I'm fairly confident in his motives) MB said 'there is play in the suspension but it's not enough to fail an MOT (their own MOT specialists) so...

    Mechanical Damage Insurance Cover?

    Browsing (I'd say trolling, but that has rather negative connotations these days...) through another thread (on Smart car problems), I saw a post from Bolide/Nick Froome that appeared to imply that one could claim for mechanical damage on one's (comprehensive, implicitly) insurance policy. Did I...

    Gearbox - Mechanical & electrical Guru?

    Hi All, Some of the threads on hear have got me thinking, especially as I have a problem with my 5sp auto on the s211 E320cdi (53-reg). Most places including MB seem to think that you need a new gearbox or torque converter, if the oil and filter change makes no difference! My car only when...

    Steering light on W212... mechanical or electrical???

    I have just swapped my W211 E320cdi avantgarde estate for a W212 avantgarde estate. So far not liking the W212 as much if I am honest with myself. The steering is the thing that is really letting it down. I don't have the 'direct steering' option on my car, I have the variable ratio...
